PRODUCT OVERVIEW:
Founded in 1972, Roberto has been 100% committed to producing one of the finest Brunellos possible via a non-interventionalist approach, high-density plantings, and ultra-rigorous green harvesting during the growing season. He is extremely passionate and bent on making the best wines possible.  He only plants Sangiovese Grosso (the “Brunello” grape) and that’s it!  Monica Larner of the Wine Advocate had the following to say about the Roberto and his efforts recently: “San Filippo is home to some of the best boutique Brunello today… The quality of the product has made quantum leaps since I first tasted the wines more than a decade ago… Proprietor Roberto Giannelli farms on mostly clay soils and his wines proudly show the extra structure and intensity that is common in this eastern corner of the appellation”

However, what’s really made the estate soar has been its prime location within Montalcino.  Roberto’s Lucere site resides within Brunello’s “Grand Cru” Central Zone (home of the “original” Brunello estates and adjacent to Biondi Santi’s Il Greppo vineyard and the birthplace of the Brunello appellation!). Le Lucere has a perfect altitude, inclination, and southern exposure… It’s Brunello’s most prime real estate!  Most of the Brunellos from this hallowed zone are the most expensive of the appellation (Soldera, Biondi Santi, Salvioni, Cerbaiona), however, Roberto’s are great values (not sure how long that will last with the great ratings he’s been getting recently!).

PRODUCT REVIEWS:
96 Points: "Subtle and complete aromas of cherry, flowers, and orange peel. Full body, round and velvety tannins. So pretty and refined. Polished. A gorgeous wine. Drink or hold." – James Suckling (November 2017)


95 Points: "As much savory as fruity, this offers a fine balance between cherry, leather, spice and carob aromas and flavors. Rich yet lively, leaving a mouthwatering impression on the long, saline aftertaste. Best from 2020 through 2035."— Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator (March 2018)

94+ Points: "Bright red. Perfumed aromas and flavors of pink flowers, sour red cherry, and strawberry. Fresh and juicy but also dense and deep, this boasts captivating sugar-acid-tannin balance. Finishes long and perfumed; despite its sneaky concentration and size, it also has a light-on-its-feet quality that is very typical of this wine. Best 2023-2037"- Ian D'Agata, Vinous Media (April 2018)
